With the advent of the Fade To Black Play Festival, we were on a mission to affect change. It was time for a new trend in the Houston theatre community! We wanted to create an outlet relevant to our present times that was purpose-driven and full of possibilities for growth, so we developed an initiative that created a platform to introduce the new plays of underrepresented, emerging African-American playwrights.
Our festival is volunteer-supported, culturally diverse, and community-based. Each year a countless number of local artists assist the festival in becoming the success it continues to be! Because of our rapid audience growth, we are now embarking upon our 7th season of excellence! Don’t miss this exciting event!
